I don't want to resort to using messages and would like to use the "|" character if at all possible.
A: You can paste a separator.
Please, see the following parameters:
//------- Separators -------
You should set a separator in the menuItems, for example:
var menuItems = [
["Home","index.cfm", , , , , , , , ],
["About Us","about.cfm", , , , , , , , ],
Q: I have a menu defined that displays and operates correctly in a page. However, if I place that same page in an iFrame the menu displays correctly BUT the texpanded parameter no longer works.
If I copy the contents of the iFrame and run it again in a new window, it all works fine again.
Is there something special I need to do in an iFrame?
Q: I see that you have the demo of the menu working over a frame so that it displays over the lower frame, vertical top to bottom.
However I have played around with your demo and can't seem to replicate the same feature.
Could you please tell me what I have to set to make the easy dropdown menu float over the lower framed window?
A: To initialize the cross frame menu call dm_initFrame() function instead of standard dm_init() function within data.js file:
dm_initFrame(framesetID, mainFrameInd, subFrameInd, orientation);
framesetID - id attribute of the frameset;
mainFrameInd - index of the main frame (where the top-menu is placed), >=0;
subFrameInd - index of the subframe (where the submenus will be shown), >=0;
orientation - frame orientaion: 0 - top-to-bottom, 1 - left-to-right; 2 - bottom-to-top; 3 - right-to-left.
For example, for the following structure:
<frameset id="frmSet" rows="185,*">
<frame id="frame1" src="cross-frame-horizontal-1.htm">
<frame id="frame2" name="testlink.htm" scrolling="no">
the dm_initFrame() function call at the end of data.js file will look like:
dm_initFrame("frmSet", 0, 1, 0);
Unless we set the topdy parameter to be -65, our submenus do not appear adjacent to the toplevel menu. Below are our parameters and our menu. What is causing this problem?
A: It is possible that you have some problems with your css.
The problem is that the script can't get css properties of the object if they are described in separate .css block (or file).
In other words, you can't get the value of "position" attribute of the object if the object doesn't have this property within inline style(style="position:absolute"). To get the value you should move .css style into style="" attribute.
Please, try to add your
css file -> inline css, for example:
You should add <DIV id=SiteMenu>
So, you'll have:
<DIV id=SiteMenu style="position:absolute;">
